When your business is competitive performance, today's terms make all the sense in the world.

job (verb): To lose a scripted performance; to take a dive.

Example: "Shane expects me to job tomorrow night at trivia so he can impress his date."

jobber (noun): Someone who regularly loses to make others look good.

Example: "A good wingman doesn't mind being a jobber so their buddies can get dates."


"Jobbing" is also known as "doing business". A good worker or friend doesn't mind doing business sometimes to put someone over; selfish or status-obsessed people tend not to want to do business.
